It is the difference in people.
It could also be because you did not know them personally or had not been around him or her before. Every year we are there Anita, as well as Linda and the others tease us and give us a hard time about being from the "corn fields" since we are from Iowa. "Oh, do they have those in the corn fields?" is a common question. We have a good laugh about it. Again though, I have known them for 10 years so I think that would make a difference.
At least you can say you tried it and hope your next trip is better
The comments wouldn't have bothered us if it was just that one day or if we were laughing and getting a chuckle out of it.

Everyone else there was great. I also forgot about the guy at the IKC desk...Pete I think?? He was a really cool guy as well.

I can see why you keep going back 10 years. That's the magic I was hoping we would have had. Finding a resort we just fall in love with. Hopefully I'll have better luck this December picking a better one.

The comments he made were in very bad taste -personally, I can't say that I blame you. And I couldn't care less about PSU. Obviously he thought he was being funny in some way -I think he needs some new material. We were at BWV all last week and I remember seeing someone in a PSU shirt, maybe it was your family.

Sorry to repeat myself, I just need to know, are the doors to the rooms (facing the hallways) metal?

Thank you!

Yes we love Pete too. He is always very pleasant. He blew me a kiss in front of a little girl this trip and she asked if I was his wife. It was quite funny

Hi all!
I have a question regarding the clown pool, since it is located on the villa side of the resort..... is it inconvenient for guests staying on the Inn? It looks kinda of far away?
I stayed at BWI once a few years ago, loved it but the weather was quite chilly so we never even looked for the pool!

It's mildly a pain but not too bad. Exit below Belle Veue Lounge, cut across courtyard and through a clearly marked cut-through.

Personally I don't find it to be a problem. Once you take the elevator to the lobby/2nd floor you just walk down the stairs by the Bell Vue Lounge and once outside walk across the tunnel to Luna Park.

Is it worth getting the refillable mugs while staying at bwv? Or should we just stock our fridge? Does it include coffee refills or just soda and iced tea?

Thank you all for the suggestions and hints! I was definitely between Kouzzina and Flying Fish and decided to go with Flying Fish for this visit. I got reservation at 7:30! So we are all set. I am also supper excited to hear that there are entertainers on the boardwalk every night. Hopefully we can spot one before our dinner! Not sure if we will be able to make it to Jellyrolls after dinner since we have pretty late reservations. Sounds really fun but may have to save that along with Kouzzina for another visit.

We are staying water view at BWI for the first time this October! Is there any special floor / area that we should request? Can Illuminations be seen from the water view rooms?

We stayed in a WV room in March and could see Wishes behind the YC but as far as IllumiNations that we could only hear until the evening we went down by the quiet pool a caught a glimpse of IllumiNations from there

May I ask what floor you were on? I'm assuming the higher up the better. Maybe we will request a higher floor! Thanks!

Also, is Water View definitely Boardwalk View or do I need to request that?

Are the 3rd and 4th floors JUST Club Level? I couldn't really find anything regarding this. I know I requested 3rd floor Tahiti at the Poly so I'm wondering if I should request 4th floor or just as high up as possible?

I don't know about WV rooms, but we were in a Standard in January on the 4th floor and it wasn't Club Level, we did see an entrance for Club level, or something about Club Level. We probably could have seen Illuminations from our room, but we were never in there during that time.

We were on the third floor. While there are CL rooms on both the 3rd and 4th floors it is not just CL Rooms. From What I know the WV has some sort of view of Cresent Lake, ours had a partial view of the lake, boardwalk, village green and BWV but Was not directly on boardwalk. We loved the location since we could see the dock and the performers near the dock. I have requested 3 rd floor facing village green and have my fingers crossed for our next visit
